"The Ring should be inserted in the normal way and the screw engaged in the side showing the Trade Mark: Turn until driver breaks off. This (patent applied for) method is designed to leave a slot where the break off occurs, and so enables the screw to be removed if required at a later date."
These instructions are for people who insert Bull Rings all the time..
"in the normal way" .

Superior Drawing Pins
The tin is less than 2 inches across..so you wouldn't get many drawing pins in it..you could fit about 8 modern drawing pins in it at a push.
The colours remind me of fair grounds.
The more I do this blog the more I realise that everywhere I go I search for a small metal item as a reminder of the trip.

I picked these up on a stall at Hartford and the man said
"you can have them..I made them for my wife"
Turns out he is an engineer and makes all kinds of things in his shed for his wife..from these useful stitch holders to special domes for her cake icing.
(It was hard to tell if she was pleased or long suffering).
He also said he is 57 and I could call them antiques.
When I was small we had a neighbour called Mr Ringrose..he could mend and make anything in his shed....it wasn't always invisible mending, but it was strong and wouldn't need mending again..
